2011 August 08

Miss Yulei Zhao, an international student who will be studying for her PhD degree under the supervision of Dr. Xiaolong Yang in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, has been awarded an Ontario Trillium Scholarship (OTS).

In November 2010 the Government of Ontario announced the creation of the OTS Program, a significant initiative to attract more of the best qualified international students to Ontario for Ph.D. studies. Each OTS is worth $40,000 annually and is held in the first four years of the student's Doctoral Program. Any prospective international Ph.D. candidate, from any field, is eligible to be nominated, with academic merit being the defining criterion for selection. This year, Queen's had only 5 OTSs to allocate.
